This square is like an Austrian or German square. It has been beautifully renovated and is a lovely place to spend a morning or afternoon.

lovely square to walk around at night and also during the day. The sunlight in the morning was great for taking pictures of the buildings. Felt very safe at night.

The old town of Sibiu is incredible beautiful, as well as the Piata Mare itself. The city reminds one of Krakow or Prague - but much cheaper!

When we visited a Medieval Festival was being staged. The square is surrounded by eating establishments but the centre of the square was filled with market stalls and entertainment. A big stage showcased local music and dancing. Our visit was in the daytime but I guess that in the evening the musical offerings would be rather more modern and upbeat.... More
